Wade, Bosh, Turiaf out for Heat-Raptors game

MIAMI (AP) -- Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Ronny Turiaf will not play Wednesday night when the Miami Heat play host to the Toronto Raptors.

It will be the 14th game Wade has missed this season, mostly with a variety of injuries and more recently because of what the Heat are calling a "maintenance" program heading into postseason. Bosh will sit out for the fourth time, and Turiaf has been dealing with a sore hamstring for about a week.

Wednesday's game starts a run of six games in nine games to close the regular season for Miami, which plays host to Chicago on Thursday night in a game that could help eventually decide the top seed for the Eastern Conference playoffs.
